Black Sapote - Bernicker

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This Chocolate Pudding fruit variety has proved very popular in Australia. The near spherical fruit is medium to large with only 1 or 2 seeds. Superb eating quality and prolific producer.

Loquat - Nagasakiwase

$49.00 ($49.00-$79.00 choose a size)

The best Japanese variety so far, it has deep orange flesh, high flesh/seed ratio and very sweet flavour. Earliest variety to ripen. Thinning fruit will enhance fruit size. The Nagasakiwase often has 2 crops a year in the subtropics. The first crop in April / May then again in August. We have found by cincturing in summer, the August crop has a much larger crop and better fruit size.

Black Sapote - Superb

$74.00 ($74.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A selection originating from north Qld. As the name suggests it is a superb quality fruit. Tends to be seedless if not cross pollinated. Heavy bearing. Also called 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. Delicious Trees can be medium to large and cross pollination is beneficial for fruit set. New growth is a light lime green/yellow colour which darkens as the leaves mature.


$19.75 ($19.75-$129.00 choose a size)

A cousin of the mangosteen, Achachas are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. Fruit should be picked mature as it does not ripen further on storage. Originating from the Bolivian part of the Amazon basin in South America, the Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss. Achacha is protected by Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and cannot be grown or propagated without licence agreement with Achacha Fruit Group

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$99.00 ($19.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree. If some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.

Carambola Starfruit - Arkin


Popular commercial variety, very heavy cropper of uniform very sweet juicy firm flesh with few seeds. Fruit 100mm in length with small wings and bright yellow skin. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit and are excellent fresh or juiced. They have an attractive weeping habit, producing a profusion of pink flowers. The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Getting some decent growth on it now even though the pot is really not suited to it, still quite decorative though.  Leaves often show yellowing and dark green veins but doesn't appear to be deficient as they always come good with out any additives.
